Springville Museum of Art Religious Show 2012

I have a painting in the
27th Annual Spiritual and Religious Art of Utah Exhibition
November 17, 2012 - January 18, 2013
at The Springville Museum Of Art

Each of my daughters has a middle name from the Old Testament, and I have done paintings for each of the women they were named after, they have actually turned into series of paintings and drawings.  This is a painting of Sarah and Abraham and Issac.

I call this painting : "As Numerous as the Stars"

And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken.
For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.
And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.
And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.
And Sarah said, God hath made me to (rejoice), so that all that hear will (rejoice) with me....
And the angel of the Lord called unto Abraham out of heaven...
And said...
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore...
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.

Genesis 22 / Genesis 26

I put a lot of damar varnish on this painting- it is quite shiny, so excuse all the glare... and I am a mom, so I think it is cute that every photo I took has little girls running around.  It makes me so happy to see them interact and be proud of my paintings.
Rett Ashby made the frame and I love it.
You should go to the museum and check it out.

The Museum is open Tuesday – Saturday 10am to 5pm, Wednesdays 10am to 9pm, and Sundays 3pm to 6pm. Closed Mondays and Holidays, except the first Monday monthly from 6pm to 8pm for Community & Family Night. Community & Family Night is not held on, or in close proximity to holidays.  Admission is Free.
(I think the Sundays 3-6 is a great Sabbath Activity)

Make sure to look for the tulips in this painting... I couldn't help myself...
